Value of company share can be calculated by dividend discount model.

Point "A" is a good point for short term investment. The price is at minimum and afterward the trend is going to upward.

But is should be sold before are on 1st JUN, because there is forecast of rapid decline in price after that date.

my ans = 6.67

any person have a other anser tell me

m a rit or not???

in my other thinking

Present Stock Value = DividendShare / (RDiscount – RDividend Growth)   =

P0 = D / K-G

=   20 / (0.13 – 0.06)

= 20 / 0.07

=   285.7 = 286

tell me anyone m riteeeeeeeeee or not

Ayesha 6% growth rate is for 3 years, next forecast is 9% for the following. So I think our calculations should explain this phenomena.

amir afterwrd expacting growth rate increases by 9% per year

but for the next three year 6%.

plz explain more this point may b m wrong in there/
